A Positive Approach to Learning At Sunmarke
Growing up in today’s world is exciting! With modern technology just about anything is possible for our kids which is why channeling their curiousity the right way is way up there on our priorities, right mama?! The overall wellbeing of our children and their ability to focus and concentrate on what’s important also calls for an education system that embraces more than just academic results – one which can help prepare our kiddos for the future and help them grow into well-rounded, interested and interesting little people.
Sunmarke School offers an approach which brings together the science of Positive Psychology (focusing on the child’s wellbeing) with best teaching practices to enable individuals to flourish. Positive Education (PosEd) provides a child with essential tools required to learn more effectively, and be more resilient, creative, productive, successful and healthy, a philosophy that empowers children to embrace our modern world in a holistic way.
Below are examples of Sunmarke’s students showcasing their leadership skills through these great accomplishments. Their level of dedication, determination, positive mindset, ability to try new things and take on challenges is evident as they come out as winners in every task they undertake.

Sunmarke promises the right balance of knowledge and fostering a positive attitude in kids so that they can be nurtured into developing their strengths and skills. And the fact that this system recognises that there’s so much more to education than academia – and that the future generation is all about being happy, well-balanced and well educated too gets a huge Sassy seal of approval. They even have Mindfulness Rooms and a Primary Happiness Hub that students can use during Positive Education lessons and also for quiet time during break times.
